Welcome to January! With snow on the way…doesn’t it seem like the perfect time to ESCAPE! 

Ever daydream about sunshine, warm temperatures and days spent making art?

Good news!

The Art League makes a trip to the sunny Bahamas each year in February, and painters of all media join to paint en plein air (because sun and sand make for better conditions than snow and wind) in one of our travel workshops. Instructor Susan O’Neill will guide the group this year.

Visit and paint the beautiful Elbow Cay, located just off the cost of West Palm Beach, Florida, which features spectacular white sand beaches and aquamarine waters, as well as pastel clap-board cottages, and white picket fences overflowing with tropical foliage. O’Neill will lead the group for five days of inspiring plein-air watercolor painting to fully capture the light, colors and rhythms of the Bahamas.
